A team of hairstylists, skin experts, and one talented nail technician works its aesthetic magic between Simplicity Salon & Spa’s deep-red walls and sleek-tiled floor. Always up-to-date on the latest styles, techniques, and booster shots, the salon’s stylists snip and color strands and add floor-sweeping length with extensions. The resident nail tech works nearby, treating tired dogs to an indulgent foot facial and decorating digits with nail art. Meanwhile, inside a private spa room, aestheticians and massage therapists erase stress with three types of facials, full-body salt scrubs, and Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
Water swirls around a washbasin at Luxe Salon & Spa, draining away Bumble and bumble products from hair as clients rest on comfy reclining seats. Exposed brick walls and hardwood floors surround them, lending the space a loft-like aesthetic, and hanging steel lights illuminate a row of swiveling chairs where stylists set to work. Here, the beauty experts pamper guests with salon services such as color treatments, hair extensions, and blowouts. The salon also offers mani-pedis, waxing treatments, and eyelash extensions that make eyes pop more than rimming them with highlighter.
Nestled in a century-old bank building, Crandall Salon & Day Spa employs nimble-fingered massage therapists Branda Gage and Ken Godey to deftly dissolve tension with attentive Swedish massages. Sentence stress to a strict timeout session with a one-hour Swedish massage, which kneads muscles and triggers blood flow with rhythmic tapping and fluid strokes. Skilled therapists incorporate friction and gentle pressure to help alleviate aches and nurture holistic healing throughout the body. Following the pampering sessions, clients may emerge with improved lymphatic circulation and a feeling of tranquility only otherwise achieved by sentencing yourself to a year of solitary confinement.
Tracey Butterfly Clark, the owner and head healer at Mariposas Garden, wants to make every service at her soothing studio an experience to remember. Against a backdrop of Buddhas, mirrors, and butterflies, Tracey offers multiple types of massage therapy, from Swedish and hot stone modalities to deep-tissue, prenatal, and Thai bodywork. Along with massage, clients might enjoy the luxurious chocolate facial, which uses a cacao bean scrub to exfoliate the skin—it's the number one facial in the world according to Willy Wonka.
